    Yeah, Tommy is no slouch! Chet Atkins and Les Paul influences, but it comes out pure Tommy. I still think Eva Cassidy owns this song, at least for a vocal version. Thanks Styx! John

    ... and now the guitar is a "singing instrument" What a wonderful performance. Thanks, Styxx.

    That is some very exceptional playing there! Thanks for posting it Styxx.

    ...It makes you want to go out and buy a guitar.

    ...but a good one, and well worn, like that one he is playing would probably cost a fortune.

    It also make you want to go clicking around in youtube looking for more gems.

    Do you also play the guitar, Styxx??

    Cool. I thought some of you would like it! Yes, I play guitar but not my main instrument. After hearing how well this guy plays I kind of feel a bit under developed? Also, my guitar isn't worn like his ... not yet at least.

    Tommy Emmanuel is an Australian, and he plays "Maton" guitars that are made in Australia using indigenous woods. He certainly knows how to milk every bit of tone and dynamics out of that battered guitar. He is also a charming and very entertaining performer. There are quite a few youtube videos featuring Tommy in both live performances and some instructional presentations. Thanks again Styxx for this post! john
